The semantic extractor mentioned above will only extract semantic  
information from wed documents, it won't pass any judgement on  
parseability.

There are tools already for that purpose. For example, well formed  
XML-based content (including XHTML family document types, when served  
as application/xhtml+xml) has a clear parsing model, which many XML  
parsers know. But not all types of Web documents have a well-defined  
parsing model (see current discussions on HTML).


P.S: I do read the list occasionally, but would rather be kept in Cc:  
of any relevant thread
